When I Grow Up ...





Here at Step by Step we work with young people to support them in realising their ambitions and putting in place the steps they need to take to reach their full potential.

Why not dress in purple or green for the day and wear a sticker to say what you'd like to be when you grow up or what you wanted to be when you were younger. If you'd like to dress up as what you would like to be even better!

Pupils and teachers can all take part and you might just find out some aspirations that have never been uncovered before:

  • Would James like to be a dentist / Annabel a mechanic / Ben a builder or Lucy a nurse?
  • Did Mr Jones always want to be a singer / Miss Smith a fundraiser / Mr Ellis run his own company or Mrs Yates to be a vet before they came into teaching?

You are sure to have a great day whilst raising funds to help young people going through hard times have the support they need to build a brighter future for themselves.

Some of the young people we are working with at Step by Step would like to be:

  • Hairdresser       
  • Musician - guitar   
  • Support Worker    
  • Join the Military   
  • Dancer

Some of our staff wanted to be:

  • Vet   
  • Teacher   
  • Journalist   
  • Working overseas


Because 1 in 100 young people in the UK are now expected to experience homelessness (Young People Count 2016) and we need your help to raise funds to enable us to support them.

Young People. Hard Times. Bright Futures.

You and your school can help young people get through hard times, including homelessness, and build brighter futures for themselves.


We can provide you with stickers, balloons, wipe dry board to display what you would like to be and collection tins / buckets as well as a dedicated fundraiser to support you.


Ask people to pay £1 to take part.  You could also hold some other activities on the day to raise extra money. Some ideas to get you started:

  • Cake sale
  • Quiz
  • Tombola
  • Soup and a Roll lunch

Thank you for raising money for Step by Step. Now it is time to get it to us so that we can put it to use, working hard to support young people!

If you have any queries, please contact our team on 01252 346112 or fundraising@stepbystep.org.uk

Thank you for supporting Step By Step. We can't wait to hear your fundraising stories!
